Nicholas Bielby and Folio Results

On Tuesday, 17th. Mbielbyay at 8 pm, Nicholas Bielby will announce the poems he has selected for inclusion in this year’s Folio before reading from his own poems.  If the writers of the chosen poems are present, they will be asked to read them, so we will have a variety of poetry for this popular annual event.

Prizewinning Nicholas is Editor of the excellent Pennine Platform as well as a poet in his own right. He has spent his life in education, both at home and abroad.  His latest book of poetry is The Naming of Things (Poetry Salzburg 2015).
